Whether you're back in the office or going back to the office soon, somebody who might not react well is your pet. Yup, Spot and Kitty could get really lonely and start being depressed or acting out. Things to look for include chewing objects, scratching, yowling or whimpering.

If you're worried about your furry baby, try working in new activities that distract or tire your pet out.  Go for walks with your dog. Play "hunting games" with your cat. Hide treats around the house, put up a bird feeder they can watch, or leave the radio or smart device on so the house isn’t quiet while you’re gone.
